Urban Armor Gear launches new iPhone 7 range!


Calling all Apple fanatics: Have you managed to get your hands on the iPhone 7 yet? If you have then listen up, and if you haven’t don’t delay any longer. Urban Armor Gear‘s new iPhone 7 range has just launched in our online store, and trust us on this: you won’t want to miss out.

Known for their instantly recognizable military-inspired designs, UAG has consistently been providing the smartphone market with durable and resilient cases for years, and their new range is no exception.

UAG’s patented composite design combines a hard outer shell with a soft impact resistant core, while the unique shape of their cases also provides structural rigidity. Each case gives full access to all ports and a soft rubberized screen surround and rear skid pads provide 360 degree protection from scratches and abrasions.

But if you’re still feeling skeptical, all of UAG’s cases have also passed the military drop-test standards, so you know your iPhone 7 is in safe hands.

Our favourite is the UAG Trooper case that lets your store your bank cards inside it! Prices for the UAG cases start at €39.99, and you can view the full range here.

To help you out, we’ve done a product comparison with two of our most popular types of iPhone 6 cases so that you can determine which case is right for you!

Both the UAG case and the Gumdrop case offer good quality protection for the iPhone 6.

Ultimately, choice will come down to two things: which design you prefer and how much money you are willing to spend.

Presenting Urban Armor Gear’s Samsung S6 range…



While Apple and its iPhone regularly feature in our blog posts, Samsung on the other hand, is scarcely discussed. And with both companies selling the two most popular smartphones on the market at the moment, we thought it was about time that we try to change this.

Whether you’re an iPhone or a Samsung fan, one thing that both sides can agree on is wanting the best protection possible for your phone.

Samsung fanatics, we just know that you’ll love Urban Armor Gear’s S6 phone case line.

Designed exclusively for Samsung Galaxy’s S6 range, UAG’s patented design combines a hard outer shell with a soft impact resistant core to provide your phone with the ultimate protection. Each case in the range comes with a HD screen guard to ensure that your phone will always be free of scratches and abrasions.

The front of the cases also feature an engineered bezel that deflects flash interference to guarantee you beautiful photos every time.
